All scheduled west-of-Hudson trains on the Metro-North Railroad's Pascack Valley and Port Jervis lines will run Monday for the first time since Hurricane Sandy, according to a news release Friday by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

The seven trains being restored are the last of the services affected by superstorm Sandy on the Pascack Valley and Port Jervis lines, which NJ Transit runs for Metro-North.

On the Pascack Valley line, two weekday inbound trains and three weekday outbound trains are being restored:

• The 7:59 a.m. peak New York State Express from Spring Valley to Hoboken/Penn Station.

• The 8:51 a.m. off-peak train out of Spring Valley.

• The 2:58 p.m. Fridays-only off-peak train out of Hoboken.

• The 3:37 p.m. off-peak out of Hoboken.

• The 7:20 p.m. Monday-Thursday off-peak out of Hoboken.

The 7:59 a.m., 2:58 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. trains were part of an expanded service that had just begun only a few weeks before Sandy hit.

On the Port Jervis line, two trains are being restored:

• The 7:46 a.m. off-peak out of Port Jervis.

• The 7:02 p.m. peak out of Hoboken.

Some Port Jervis line trains will continue to make stops in New Jersey to support NJ Transit's continuing recovery efforts, the MTA said.

"We are very gratified that our operating partner is able once again to operate a full complement of trains to serve our New York State customers," Metro-North president Howard Permut said.
